Göksel Baktagir

Göksel Baktagir was born in Kırklareli in 1966. He began his musical education at the age of eight, under the supervision of his father Muzaffer Baktagir. he subsequently registered at the ITU State School Of Art For Turkish Music in 1983 and graduated from there in 1988 . A year later, he started his graduate study at the same school. Göksel Baktagir, began composing during his student years at the conservatory and today has a hundred and forty compositions; thirty-five vocal and a hundred and five instrumental art-works to his credit. He has developed a special left hand technique that is unique to him since 1984 along with other techniques in the performance of the Kanun. He is universally recognized as one of the leading artists of our time with regards to the traditional performance of the Kanun, having explored extensively all of the possibilities and limits of the instrument, which, although originally an instrument of Turkish music, is also capable of extending into other genres such as New Age and Jazz. In fact Göksel himself has participated in many concerts together with various western Jazz Groups. Apart from occupying a permanent position in the State Turkish Music Group of İstanbul, he also performs in the İstanbul Fasıl Group and İstanbul Sufi Music Group. He participated in “International Rabat Festival”in Morocco as well as at the “Baş Çarşı Festival”in Sarajevo. He has also released 7 CDs of his own works as well as of Turkish traditional material. In the recent years, he has given lectures at the Mimar Sinan University State School of Art and he is currently giving lectures at the Haliç University.
